I love to see others helping to preserve knowledge of early American textiles, so I’m excited to have booked a place at the Textiles of Early Kentucky workshop, June 20-21:
“This two-day event will feature Rabbit Goody, Owner, Designer, and Master Weaver, Thistle Hill Weavers, Cherry Valley, NY. Goody will present Textiles in Early Kentucky: Breaking the Myths and Julienne Foster, Executive Director of LHHS, will present Fashioning the American Identity: 1770-1825 on the first day, June 20 from 9 am-3:30 pm. $55/$50 for members (includes a box lunch). Pre-registration is required for Friday’s Seminar. On Saturday, June 21, there will be a Textile Roadshow, where the public is invited to bring in family heirlooms, such as samplers, coverlets, quilts, etc. for Ms. Goody to evaluate and verbally appraise. $10 per item/9:30 am-12:30 pm. Reservations recommended for Textile Roadshow. Held at the Orlando Brown House. Call 502-227-2560 to reserve a spot or receive a brochure.”
I”m really looking forward to it – should be well worth an Ohio River crossing!
